Remember to make your pages easy to read with some color, a few images and white space. The writing and actual formatting of an e-book is a whole other article that I am writing currently and hope to share with you soon.

After spending tons of money, several years and many-many hours online with my websites and e-book projects, I have gone through the ups and downs of the learning process of trying to sell e-books both for myself and for others.

One important choice you can make when just starting out is, are you going to sell the e-book or are you going to offer it for free to get your name out there with all your links and contact information you can visit www.easy-pdf-toolkit.com This is called “viral marketing” with the purpose of having as many people as possible sharing and downloading your e-book. You can even offer your free e-book to websites as a joint venture for them to offer your e-book as their free bonus with their sales.

The key things that you will need to sell your e-book online are:

A website or webpage of your own or offer your e-book to an e-book website that may take a small fee and / or include your e-book in an affiliate program- A good sales page about the e-book – A quality e-book Cover Image – Graphics are key! A “Thank You” Download page from where your e-book is downloaded- Other Marketing Considerations may include:

Offering a Free Bonus E-Book – very important in this e-business to over deliver for the price! Set a budget to test some PPC (pay-per-click) Advertising such as Google Ads to drive traffic to your sales page- Exchange related links with quality websites with a good search engine ranking- Process a Press Release such as with PRWEB – Join e-book Forums and post messages with your e-book link- Take advantage of your email “Signature” to include your e-book or go to www.allfreereports.com Title and sales page link in addition to telling friends and family- Start a BLOG about your e-book topic and include the link to your e-book sales page.

The important factor is not to go wild with over-spending on marketing. Test-test-test and research online for many more ways to promote your e-book. The best advice I can give if this is your first e-book, is to start another e-book right away that either expands on the chosen subject or another topic that you have a passion for. Remember, you can either try to do all of this publishing and promoting yourself, you can share the tasks, or you can have a professional guide you and produce a satisfactory product for you while you spend your time and energy writing your next e-book!
